Today on Your Call: How do we move from conscious customer consumption to collective action?


How do we move from conscious customer consumption to collective action? On the next Your Call we’ll speak with Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé about the connection between food, climate, and consumption. Forty-two years after the publication of France’s Moore Lappé's bestselling book “Diet for a Small Planet,” what have we learned about our food system? What’s gotten worse? And what’s improved? What will it take to make real changes to the food system? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Frances Moore Lappé, author of the groundbreaking book Diet for a Small Planet.

Anna Blythe Lappé, environmental and food advocate, author of Diet For a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It.
